Microsoft MDS Other Advice

* It's sweet spot is reference data. Attempting to use it for large scale customer data or products may be problematic. * The tool is integrated into Dynamics AX but there is not clear direction by Microsoft for improving and supporting the product as a stand alone long term. Use it with that knowledge and look for any indication from Microsoft that it will continue to support it or deprecate it. * If starting out I would not recommend using any version prior to 2016.

On a scale of one to ten, I would rate Microsoft MDS an eight. I'd give it an 8 and not a 10 because it lacks some features, such as machine learning. View full review »

I am an information security analyst and I research to stay up on the trends and to see what is happing on the market now because we run our Firewalls. I would recommend getting the correct licenses. From the article, they should get to know which licenses, because there are different agents of licensing. Ensure they get the right size servers. Ensure that they have the best technical expertise, to help with the implementation. Microsoft products are quite good. We run innovation Microsoft 2017 and it's pretty impressive. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten. View full review »

We use the private cloud version of the solution. The beauty with Master Data Services is that it's centralized in one place and the problem with other solutions is that most of them have been created in house. There is an overlap between them. The big advantage of this solution is with regards to a data warehouse. What you can do is cleanse the data and make it consistent throughout the warehouse before it gets into it, so it guarantees consistency. I'd recommend Microsoft MDS. It's the best MDM tool out there. I would rate the solution seven out of ten. View full review »

If I have to rate this program from one to ten, I will give it an eight. My advice to others would be to use an activity log. They should have a user account and they should keep track of every user that logs on, and the platform should keep track of it. View full review »
